Catching Or Kissing Fish Can Be Fun At NC Seafood Festival

One of the big draws for the 25th Annual North Carolina Seafood Festival is something you can smell over the crisp ocean air- crunchy, grilled, or wrapped up seafood, but there are la couple of other ways to enjoy fish and creatures of the sea during the festival.

If you want to catch your own, grab a fishing permit off the Oceana Pier or head to the Bogue Inlet Pier for a fishing tournament. Saturday and Sunday the event starts at 8:00 a.m. and the largest fish off a rod and reel in any category scores a 2010 Bogue Inlet Pier year- long fishing pass.

Then there's the traditional Flounder Fling.
"We have families come back year after year. They bring their children back, and it's just neat to watch how they show their children how to toss the flounder- techniques they have, "said Greg Rice with the NC Seafood Festival.

For this year's designated Flounder Flinger Heather King, Rice has a couple of pointers.

"Just pucker up and just go with the flow," said Rice

While that kiss may not send off fireworks, they will blast off around 9:00 p.m. Saturday.

Our crew will be there all weekend and we hope you stop by and say hello.

      Evidently they are giving you something to complain about. That's where they are. Do you not have anything better to do than worry about how something is written?
